An unprecedented number of children, youth and adults are not attending schools or universities because of COVID-19.  Governments in 100 countries have announced or implemented the closure of educational institutions in an attempt to slow the spread of the disease (link is external). UNESCO is providing immediate support to countries as they work to minimize the educational disruption and facilitate the continuity of learning, especially for the most vulnerable. 

According to UNESCO monitoring, 85 countries have closed schools nationwide, impacting over 776.7 million children and youth. A further 15 countries have implemented localized school closures and, should these closures become nationwide, hundreds of millions of additional learners will experience education disruption.
